NEW YORK – AGORA, a Greek brand pop-up, curated by Marianthi Vlachos of Hellenic Aesthetic and Kristina Headrick, is coming to New York on Saturday, November 16. Headrick spoke with The National Herald about the concept.
She told TNH, “We’re so excited to share this concept for the first time with the New York City community! This is something we’ve both wanted to bring to life for a while and are excited it’s happening this November, just in time for holiday shopping.
“Inspired by the ancient Athenian agora, we’ve curated an afternoon to exchange goods + ideas. There will be a selection of Greek brands to shop throughout the day, as well as a free Yia Mas Greek wellness workshop at 2 PM. We’ll have healthy Mastiqua to sip throughout the day. Participating vendors include Zacharias Greek leather goods, Hellenic Aesthetic jewelry, home goods, and other beautiful items made in Greece, Yia Mas brand items, Quixotic Journals, Laiik Handcrafted Sandals, and more to be announced very soon. We may also have some Greek coffee and snacks on site, finalizing those details as we speak!”
The event takes place, Saturday, November 16, 12-6 PM, at 39-14 Crescent Street in Long Island City.
